Welcome from the Chair

As the elected Chair of the Delegation to the EU-Kazakhstan, EU-Kyrgyzstan, EU-Tajikistan and EU-Uzbekistan Parliamentary Cooperation Committees and for relations with Turkmenistan and Mongolia (DCAS), it is my pleasure to welcome you to our webpages.

During my term, I aim to strengthen strategic and economic relationships between the European Parliament and Central Asian States, together with political dialogue and promotion of human rights, trade and common security.

Through parliamentary diplomacy at our disposal and namely Parliamentary Cooperation Committees (PCC) meetings, we will support the implementation of the EU and Central Asia Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCAs).
We will also hold Inter-Parliamentary Meetings (IPM) with our counterpart not having PCAs.

I look forward to guiding our Delegation with the fruitful support of all of you.
